Swimming with Manatees in Crystal River, Florida

Watch as we swim with manatees in the Crystal River in Florida! 

Because the water temperature in the springs of Kings Bay, the headwaters of Crystal River remains a constant 72 degree temperature, over 400 manatees will migrate to Crystal River each winter to seek refuge from the cold Gulf waters. Every year, a number of manatees remain in the bay throughout the summer months. These resident manatees, and the abundance of manatees that migrate here in the winter, make swimming with the manatees in Crystal River an unforgettable experience. Crystal River is one of the only rivers in Florida where people can legally interact and swim with the manatees in their natural habitat.
